Re and endangered languages, like

My current thought is to forgo completely, in the system I am building, the idea of separated natural languages:

because the languages I have in minds dialects of (usually rtl, but there is latin script in the wild), and tamazight ( and latin) of north africa are mix'n'matched, and include words from english, and french, and others and spelling is less than accurate,

I should have started with this:

I am working on a search engine . Unlike a todoapp, it requires more hardware, having an idea of how much people are willing to spend upfront or by subscription renting a server will help me figure what kind of hardware I need to acquire to be able to test the algorithms.

Thanks for you cooperation! (and please boost!)

Tonga: Tsunami waves hit Pacific country after huge underwater volcano eruption

A tsunami warning is in force for all of the Pacific nation after the latest in a series of spectacular eruptions from the Hunga Tonga Hunga Ha'apai volcano.

Cats can precisely negotiate obstacle courses meaning that If your cat knocks things over, they meant to do that. 😸

Job offer for a 100% remote job: "but we do expect you back in the office fulltime when the lockdown is over. Which hopefully will be soon."

Tongan volcano eruption, tsunami & related disruptions 

weatherwatch.co.nz/content/lik This was so loud I've had reports from friends in New Zealand over 3000km away in the South Island that they'd heard this. I expect we'll see further related volcanic and seismic disruptions in the general region, incl wider Pacific Ring of Fire in the coming weeks.

I'll mainly post scientific content & related links in this thread, but also some humanitarian aspects esp relevant aid organisations when it becomes more clear what's needed. For your disaster watching needs you'll need to go elsewhere.

To put this into perspective the *ash plume* shortly after the eruption was almost 800km in diameter.

Also of interest, is that this appears to be an underwater eruption, so you can imagine the energy needed to expel all that through the ocean and into the atmosphere.

Now time to write the code 😬... Easier said than done πŸ˜‚
